Abstract

Stimulatory (Gs) and inhibitory (G(i)) guanine nucleotide binding protein alpha subunit levels were measured in mononuclear leukocytes from 22 drug-free depressed patients (eight with bipolar disorder, 14 with major depressive disorder) and a comparison group of 17 age- and sex-matched healthy subjects. The levels of Gs alpha and G(i) alpha were significantly higher (160% and 114%, respectively) in the bipolar patients, but not the patients with major depressive disorder, than in the healthy subjects. These data add to the evidence for abnormalities in G protein levels and function in the pathophysiology of bipolar disorder.
